Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Personally, I would prefer that there have to be coalitions, rather than potentially have 49.9% of the people not be represented at all,...

It can even get worse!
The "49.9%" is only true in a real two party system.
Look at the British elections this year. The Labour party got 55% of the seats with only 35% of the votes.
